Dick Vitale: Pitino passed a lie detector test about sex scandal

On Friday, the Louisville Cardinals announced they would self-impose a postseason ban for 2016 season in response to the ongoing NCAA investigation into the escort scandal that reportedly happened over the course of the last few years.

The team was looking like one of the hottest in the country before this news came down and nobody really seems to be happy about it. ESPN college basketball broadcaster Dick Vitale even said that head coach Rick Pitino had already cleared his name as he passed a lie detector test about his knowledge of the parties.

For all those screaming that Rick Pitino knew about the sex parties-a FACT -a source told me that Pitino took a LIE DETECTOR test & passed!

If this is true, it may help Pitino’s case in the eyes of the fans, but the NCAA is going to rule no matter what. Maybe the self-imposed ban is for the best as it may lessen the punishment the Cardinals eventually get from the higher-ups.
